Popular tourist spot will be cut off to visitors during car ban
A POPULAR tourist spot will be blocked off during the car ban trial.
Cowdray Crescent, on the High Street, is often used as a drop off point for tourist buses.
But under the scheme, starting March 17, collapsible bollards will be put up to prevent access to anyone except emergency vehicles.
The spot houses the 28ft grade II monument dating from World War One which remembers fallen soldiers from both world wars and terrorist attacks.
A Colchester Council spokesman said: “There will be a new coach drop off point on East Hill where the old bus stop used to be.”
